more money in detroit. what we've devised a plan that would dramatically lower taxes in detroit, bring the corporate income tax down to five percent, the personal income tax down to five percent, make the capital gains tax zero, take the payroll tax and bring it down for the employee and the employer. without bringing any new money to detroit, just leaving money in detroit is over a billion dollars that would stimulate detroit's economy. >> basically a flat tax but flat nonetheless. >> absolutely. flat and very low. we also look at regulations and try to get rid of the owner's regulations that's making it expensive for city government and for businesses to locate in detroit. we think if you combine all of this, that it would be the model for how you would rescue cities across the country but any impoverished area. we have impoverished areas in eastern kentucky. we think this same plan would rescue them and parts of louisville and other major cities. >> maybe the country while you're at it. we have had five years of spread the wealth. you didn't build that. share share economics.
